BP Oil Spill Physics Challenge
17 Feb 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Steve Wereley
On May 13 Professor Wereley used optical feature tracking to estimate the volume flow of oil from the on-going BP Macondo oil field spill. Several other independent scientists also performed similar measurements at about the same time. These several measurements were all in the ballpark of...
Circuits on Cellulose: From Transistors to LEDs, from Displays to Microfluidics on Paper
14 Feb 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Steckl
In this lecture I will review the use of cellulose-based paper as a material in a variety of electronic (and related) applications, including transistors, light emitting diodes, displays, microfluidics. Paper is a very attractive material for many device applications: very low cost, available in...
Controlling Membrane Organization: Effects of pH, Ions, and composition
23 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jennifer Hovis
Our main research interests are in determining, at the molecular level, how cell membranes are organized and how that organization relates to function. The primary molecular building blocks of cell membranes are lipids, amphipathic molecules that assemble into two opposed leaflets forming a...

Introduction of MEMS Activity at Nano/Micro System Engineering Lab., Kyoto University
15 Sep 2007 | | Contributor(s):: OSAMU TABATA
We are aiming at the realization of microsystems and nanosystems with novel and unique functions by integrating functional elements in different domains such as mechanics, electronics, chemistry, optics and biotechnology. These micro/nano systems are expected to be novel machines, which will...
KIST/PU Phage Display Selection of Tissue-Specific Homing Peptides and their Theragnostic Applications
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Byung-Heon Lee
Several homing peptides that are specific to tumor cells, artherosclerotic plaques, stroke lesion, apoptotic cells and phosphatidylserine have been isolated by phage display in our laboratory. For example, the Bld-1 peptide is specific to bladder tumor cells and the AP-1 to atherosclerotic...
Measuring Disaster: the magnitude of the BP oil spill
09 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Steve Wereley
On May 13 Professor Wereley used optical feature tracking to estimate the volume flow of oil from the on-going BP Macondo oil field spill.
Molecular Sensors for MEMS
10 Dec 2009 | | Contributor(s):: John P. Sullivan
This seminar will cover the issues involved in using molecular sensors in MEMS and their application to microchannels, supersonic micronozzles, microjet impingement, microturbines and unsteady fluidic actuators.
15 Jun 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Sinnott
10 Sep 2004 |
As we enter the 21st century, we stand at a major inflection point for biology and medicine-the way we view and practice these disciplines is changing profoundly. These changes are being driven by systems biology, a new approach to biology, and which will increasingly transform medicine from...
